All suspects from homicide investigation in custody

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA21) - All three men suspected in a weekend homicide case are now in custody according to the Fort Wayne Police Department.

As of 7:45 p.m. Monday evening, police had all three suspects. Detectives are thanking everyone that provided information to police about possible whereabouts of 21-year-old Matthew J. Cramer II and 20-year-old Jacob D. Carreon-Hamilton.

According to Sgt. Jeremy Webb, 20-year-old Cody Clements turned himself in to authorities earlier Monday.

Police say the charges for each person will be released at a later time. They say the investigation is still ongoing and they are still gathering more evidence.

The Allen County Coroner's Office identified the victim as 55-year-old Shane Van Nguyen. The coroner said he died by blunt force injury to the head, and ruled his death Allen County's 12th homicide this year.

Nguyen was the subject of a statewide Silver Alert issued overnight Saturday. According to authorities, he was last seen Friday at about 3 p.m.

Sunday morning, authorities found his body in a crashed vehicle in the 1500 block of Forest Park Boulevard near Anthony and Lake Avenue.

Police said that vehicle matched the description of a car that had been involved in an earlier pursuit. Authorities had to stop the chase because of unsafe speeds.
